to witness the vote. the united states, israel and other western countries oppose this move by the palestines. palestinians. more than a dozen european countries are supporting this rez lug. the uk says it may vote yes pending a couple of conditions. the u.s. has supported a two-state resolution for palestinians and israelis. why do american officials oppose u.n. recognition? >> for the most part it won't give the palestinians what they want, which is an actual state. this vote is largely symbolic. it would have no effect on the palestinian sovereignty or borders or any of the things they're looking for. israel is vehemently opposed to this vote. it said it threatened to cut off aid to the palestinians, impose new checkpoints if they do so. what the u.s. is fearing here is that if this vote goes ahead, and we see that it's pretty much a guarantee that it will -- that the palestinians will be upgraded at the u.n., basically it's not going to lead to anything good on the ground. what the u.s. is afraid of is that it will lead to more violence if the palestinians don't see their state actually r
in gaza rained down on israel this week. israelies were injured and at least one was killed. but it sure is right -- absolute right of self-defense is responded to defend its people. prime minister netanyahu said it best. the terrorists are committing a double war crime. they fire at israeli citizens and they hide behind palestinianian civilians. but the government in egypt, which was backed by the administration, has condemned israel, not hamas. the terrorist group hamas doesn't want peace with israel. it wants war. it kills israeli citizens and then hides behinds the skirts of palestinian women. israel has the moral right and duty to defend itself from the bar barrack hamas. the united states should be in total support of israel, our ally. the u.s. should be bold in its condemnation of hamas and the u.s. should be bold in this continuing war by terrorist, like hamas, on civilized nations and that's just the way it is. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from oregon rise? the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. blumenauer: thank you, madam speaker. perha
days after it was put in place. israel reported that it has spotted an iranian ship bound for gaza. a threat that an israeli source would end the cease-fire deal. david lee miller has more from jerusalem. >> reporter: new iranian weapons could be on their way to to gaza for use by militants. an israeli spy satellite spotted cargo being loaded on a ship including rockets. the israeli military is believed to have destroyed much of the stockpiles in gaza during the conflict. the report cites israeli intelligence sources says the weapons shipment will be escorted by an iranian warship. israel says it will destroy any weapons headed to gaza and the cargo ship may contain longer range ballistic missiles. hamas leadership says with the help of iran will continue to rebuild its arsenal. workers in gaza are now rebuilding tunnels two-thirds of which were destroyed by israeli air strikes. according to iran's news agency he called hamas prime minister to congratulate him on a great victory. he said we stand by the palestinian people. and it's not just religion leaders they are supporting the
agreement between hamas and israel which may beer maybe not. maybe he did a great job. there are also arms being smuggled through egypt so maybe he got too much credit. >> he seized the day. his name is on top of all newspapers. here i am, i need to consolidate power this morning. >> charles krauthammer believes there is a connection between the praise that came from the united states and what president morsey has done now in egypt. >> i'm not surprised at all that the brotherhood is now essentially engaging in a cudahy that. the shamelessness and speed in which he did this the day after the agreement. i think the administration has to wonder whether the praise it gave which was fusive and excessive didn't give morsey the sense that he can can strike now because he has been elevated to a great world leader. he had to do the cease-fire because he needs the money and he wouldn't have had it otherwise. and also because egypt has never wanted to be dragged back into the palestine wars by the palestinians who want everybody to die on their behalf. >> he then went out and spoke to large crowds s

of questions about the obama administration and their support. are they really supporters of israel. i have seen survey that has say among jewish voters the economy are still far above their concern aut our administration whichever president support israel, true or not true? >> you will get an answer yes, and no. in some places yes, in some places no. for many of place, israel is a priority. not that it is more important than the economy. we have a number of issues that are very important to us. israel is one of them. for others i suppose israel doesn't resonate in the sam strong fashion, but i don't think, i think this is what is becoming apparent. i don't think the democratic party should take the view wish vote for granted and we have a lock on that vote. people are reassess and reconsidering what is important tohem and making decisions accordingly. >> tom: there was talk about parishes some priests would get out and say, hey, this is how we want you to go vote. do you think it will happen from different parishes? >> no, but certain throughout the country they will have leaders stand up

of a very scary flare-up between israel and gaza. we do not know exactly what started this most recent round of fighting, but we do know that an israeli air strike killed the top commander of hamas in gaza on wednesday, and we know then that that was followed by rocket attacks aimed at southern israel and then tel aviv, and then today jerusalem. israel has been pounding gaza with air strikes. the attacks appeared to be rapidly escalating including signs that israel is preparing for a ground incursion into gaza. "the new york times" citing reports of israeli tanks massing on the border with gaza. amid all of this in the world, today washington was consumed with two major issues. the first was the start of negotiations to head off a deliberate crisis that d.c. created for itself so they could come to a few new deal between the parties and between the president and congress on spending and taxes and the deficit. that negotiation started today. the white house said top level white house staffers will be continuing those negotiations that started today, even while the president is off on this big

but on the other hand you saw last week how important morsi was in putting together the cease-fire between israel and hamas. he will be important on issues like iran, on countering terrorism. he now is one of the dominant figures in the middle east. so the administration doesn't want to alienate him but i do think they have to speak truth to power. and there will be criticism both from the united states and many other countries about this worrisome sign of possible return to authoritarianism in egypt. >> glor: nicholas burns, thank you. palestinian authority president abbas spoke to his supporters on the eve of his departure to the united nation where he will argue that plan should be upgraded to an observer state. abbas's predecessor yasser arafat died eight years ago. some still suspect foul play. as allen pizzey reports tonight an extraordinary step will be taken this week trying to resolve doubts once and for all. >> reporter: for many palestinians yasser arafat is more a relic of history than part of the ongoing struggle for an independent state. for a brief period this week, however, he wil
